Altenew Painted Butterflies + A Sketch Challenge

By | 03/19/2019

It’s time for this week’s Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!

This one is a frame of sorts and I always find these challenging.

I decided to do a different twist on it than what I usually do with these types of card sketches.  This time, I randomly stamped images using Altenew’s Painted Butterflies stamp set in a variety of Altenew inks.  Then I cut the panel into the pieces of the frame and applied them to a black card stock mat.

Here is the result:

I ended up really being happy with the outcome. I like this better than trying to die cut out a frame with dies or punches and then stamping below the frame on a piece of card stock.

Plus…these painted butterflies are one of my very favorite Altenew stamp and die sets.  It has a coordinating die that I rarely use.  I so love this set and you can see how well used it is when you look at it.

I love that I can be imperfect when I stamp that top layer on to the color layer.

Plus…aren’t the colors fantastic?  I’ve used Altenew Crisp Dye Inks in Lagoon, Warm Sunshine, Ultraviolet, and Coral Bliss.  I’ve also added a spring mix of Studio Katia sequins.

That wonderful sentiment comes from the painted butterfly stamp set.  I love the sentiments in this set along with the images.

This card makes me so happy!!!

By the way…I saw a robin this weekend!  Spring really is here!

Here is this week’s Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and we would love to have you play along!
